Hen of the Woods, only in the Fall. A friend brought it over, from under a dying oak tree. It was almost the size of my beagle, and I dried, froze, cooked, and froze some more. Fantastic texture.

Vit, you have to try it! Like a steak texture! Leash didn't fit.

This thread brings to mind visiting in-laws in southern Ohio in the 60's - BIL had gathered morels from the woods, and SIL dredged slices in flour with s&p, then fried them. Absolutely heavenly. I haven't had them since, but remember well how unique and delicious the flavor was.

Just a couple of years ago, daughter and her boyfriend, who was a chef, gathered wild chanterelles in the woods when we were living in Charlotte NC. He made a nice sauce with them (while we tried our best to be confident in his shroom knowledge).

I'm one of the many here who were bowled over by that wonderful gratin recipe.

I'm drooling just reading this thread! I love mushrooms! To be honest I have only had wild mushrooms once and I didn't like them, but I think that can be attributed to the fact I was 8 or 9 years old and they were totally different from anything I had tried. As an adult I have not met a mushroom I haven't loved!

I am hoping the morel season was good this year in MN. I always manage to find room in my luggage to take a couple of jars of dried morels home from my father's stash...if I can't bring walleye, maybe I can bring morels. I really have to start planning my trips to MN around the time my favorite foods are plentiful...

I investigated buying morel plugs so I could grow them here on the farm...just didn't get around to it this year. Maybe next year, since I finally got the chickens this year, two apricot trees, and more blueberry plants. Other things that have been on my "add to the farm" list. I'm holding firm against a dairy cow...don't think I can handle milking twice/day and figuring out what to do with all that milk. Not to mention all the fencing we'd have to do to have secure pasture areas...and, cows probably like company, so two would be in order...maybe a couple of dairy goats would be a better idea...

Mushrooms need to be cooked to get any nutritional value from them.
